3 months going and love my ISF 500M. Only problem, the heat it gives off, I need to have the AC on at all times. Oh well, if that's the only price I will have to pay, then so be it

Well, it's winter here in Uruguay so heat is a bonus

Does anyone know whether or not it would be possible to port a program like ControlCal or Kuro control to the iPod/iPhone?

It's within the realm of possibility but it seems impractical.

Hi Guys,

First, happy 4th to everyone

I really really need your collective help!!.

Here is the situation:
3 months ago I put my stuff in storage pending an upcoming move (as for my HT gear I had all the original boxes and I did the packing and unpacking my self - I am very particular about this stuff like the most of you).
I Just did the move and unpacked everything over the weekend - having the priorities in order I wanted to set up the HT asap and managed to have everything mounted as it used to be (or at least I think so - I have gone over it twice but I could be wrong that is why I need your help).

My gear consists of onkyo 3007 + oppo bd 83 + 7.2 HSU ultra speakers and of course our beloved KRP 500M.

When I finally powered it all up: I got sound from all channels but NO picture (yes KRP is turned on and HDMI connected, as I can get the KRP menu items up on the screen - just no picture coming through from neither the onkyo nor the oppo directly).
I have tried changing the cable from both onkyo and oppo as well as going direct but to no avail.

The KRP says on screen that no source is connected ??

With succes I did try conneting another flat screen to the same cable going from the onkyo to KRP i.e. picture comes out just fine on that monitor - just not the KRP - HELP WHAT AM I DOING WRONG - is there setting or something I have overlooked - HELP please (maybe it is just something simple??).

I am so tired now - hopefully some of you can point me in the right direction - PLEASE, as I cant bear to send the KRP somewhere to get fixed (I now live in a small town in the midwest and there is for sure nobody anywhere close that could fix it - so hopefully it is just something simple and something I have overlooked or forgotten).

Any help is much appreciated

Kind regards

Hans Christian

Normally I'd blame KuroLink (CEC) but in this case I suggest you connect the Oppo (using a DVD not BD) directly using a non-HDMI and ideally analog (component or composite) connection. First to the working display (to verify and possibly adjust output settings) and then to the KRP.
post #5828 of 6954
Are you sure you have the Kuro turned on and the correct HDMI source selected BEFORE you turn on the 'upstream' device? The Kuro needs to be on to respond to the HDCP handshaking requests in a timely fashion. Make the Kuro the only downstream device, to make sure some other HDMI device is not sending a signal upstream that causes HDCP content to be shut down.

Also you wrote>"... The KRP says on screen that no source is connected ?? ..."
Can you try a different HDMI jack/port on the KRP?

the best way to delete an idea is to post one of your own.

Thanks bodosom,

I must have tried 50 different combinations today but still same result. I of course tried your good suggestion below as well as connecting my laptop via the appropriate port directly to the 500 with the same cable that works with my monitor (Same result comes up on the display: NO INPUT SIGNAL)

ARGH !@#$% I am going nuts here - everything else on the TV seem to work fine e.g. menus all come up fine when prompted via the remote.

Any other good suggestions

Kind regards
Hans Christain

Have done a reset? Can KuroControl/KuroReader read the settings?
post #5831 of 6954
Ive had my 600M for just over 14 months now.. and watching the LIFE bluray on it makes it seem brand new. Its seriously some of the best eye candy i have ever seen.

how do I reset that
post #5833 of 6954
^^
Start with pages 26-29 in( the English version of) the manual. More complex operations will require KuroControl.

Does 500M have a "hotel mode"? Can that be the problem for him, bodosom?

Outside of using the Service Menu, the only way to fully reset a KRP to "out-of-the-box" defaults that I am aware of is through Integrator Mode (normally used by custom installers), which can be enabled per pages 74-75 of the user manual. Per page 18 of Integrator Manual, there is a "Factory Default" option in the Integrator menu, and the "Factory setting takes approximately 10 seconds to reset."

Keep in mind that this resets EVERYTHING - all picture, input, IP, sound, option settings, etc. - to factory defaults.

I should have said the next step would be the INTEGRATOR MENU. jdbimmer makes another save.

Not as far as I know. The INTEGRATOR MENU does let you preset picture modes and alter the power on input and volume but (I haven't tested this) it doesn't explicitly say that you can't change those values so I wouldn't consider this hotel mode. Also this isn't something that one can readily change (i.e. it's unlikely to be inadvertent).

I have a 500m and the elite VSX-21 receiver. Since the video processor in the KRP is better than the receiver, how do I set my system up so that all video processing is done by the KRP? Thanks in advance.

best bet is to ask in this thread:

Just ordered it. Thanks for posting.

I forget how spoiled I am with this set until my friends comment or I watch a movie somewhere else. I was home for 4th of July and watched Planet Earth on my dad's Sony XBR4 (circa 2008). I calibrated it back when he bought it, but darker scenes looked fake, like it was all CGI, while it looks completely natural on the 500M. I attribute this to the lacking BL performance which has quite a pronounced effect on the overall image.

You wont regret the Life purchase. Ive got the Planet Earth blu ray as well (both with David Attenborough, hope you did the same) and i feel the image quality in Life is significantly better... might just be all the time lapse (which btw looks phenomenally clear) and macro work they show, but its way more pleasing to watch.

No luck with picture. I called pioneer today and they said it meght be the video card?? can that be true if the menu functionality comes up on the screen.

Anyway, now i have to get a dreded tech to mess around with TV - dang i am so nervous of scratches etc..

Can someone help me with this issue?

I turned on my TV a while back (after getting a Mac Mini) and now one of my pixels just blinks red random and often on all inputs (also on black screen). It is near the top in the middle. It is only one pixel but it is annoying me and I know it's always there.

Any ideas on how to get rid of this pixel issue and make it work properly? Started right after warranty ended.

Replace the panel -- which, while expensive, is better than the alternative.

There are several Pixar movies that people use to fix some stuck pixels. I'm not sure what your pixel is doing but it might be worth a try. The high contrast vivid colors may cause your pixel to stop it's blinking.

How far away from the display is your normal viewing seat? From that distance can you see the bad pixel when you watch full screen movies or TV? If not, then maybe you're building a very expensive mountain out of imperfect pixel.

Even if you were still within warranty, it's almost certain that the warranty also would not have covered any type of repair or replacement for only 1 stuck or dead pixel anyway.

Unfortunately can't afford to do that.

I have a hand full of Pixar films that I can try out. Any particular mode I should put the display on?

I sit about 9 ft away and see it from time to time. When I do see it I can't stop seeing it for the rest of the day. It stops blinking sometimes though and works properly but it'll just instantly start blinking red.

I would try Dynamic mode with the Pixar movie of your choice for several hours. Our display was calibrated in Standard mode by UMR. Others may have settings to recommend.

We had a pixel stuck on red when our display was delivered. The only way I could see it was when contrasting solid color screens were being displayed and I examined the screen from close range. After about 24 hours of continuous operation the the pixel started working again. That was over three years ago.

I haven't had a reason to display solid colors since the first week, and I don't examine the screen from close range, so as far as I know, the pixels are all working. I tend to get into the movie or sports events that I'm watching. There have been times when I intended to watch for something mentioned at AVS, and then found that the movie was over, and I hadn't thought to look for what ever had been reported.
